Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We loved everything about our stay at Paere House. It’s a complete home away from home, with many well-thought-out touches to make your stay on Rarotonga easier. Communication with Eddie is a breeze, and the snorkelling at Tikioki (right across the road) is unparalleled. Meitaki maata, Eddie, for an awesome stay - see you next time!

Our stay at Paere House was nothing short of superb. The location is terrific - 20 minutes away from the airport. 5 minutes from Muri. 2 from Charlies. 10 from Wigmores. It's across the street from one of the best snorkeling spots on the Island. The home is clean, tidy and well appointed. The fans keep the home wonderfully cool. The amenities are everything you need to cook your own meals, clean your own clothes and lie out in the sun after a day of swimming. There are ants, but there are ants everywhere in Raro. You learn to clean your dishes right away and keep your food in the fridge. Eddie, the property manager was terrific with his instructions and responsive to all of our questions. This was our second stay at one of Eddie's properties and I can guarantee that our third will be with him as well. Deal with confidence!

This is a lovely tidy open plan little house, perfect for a family of four. It is across the road from the best snorkelling spot. When facing the water walk about 100 metres to the right, snorkel out and you will see the most amazing schools of fish in your life. We highly recommend hiring a car when on the island so you can visit all the beaches and eating places with ease. Hire a kayak from adventure Cook Islands, they deliver to your house, straight out from the batch is where Captain Tuma Lagoon Cruise stops. You can kayak or snorkel to the spot in minutes. Just so you are aware the main road is in front of the house but first you have a lovely large lawn with coconut trees and tropical plants. You only really hear the traffic early on Saturday night but mostly you listen to the sound of the waves on the reef. There are plastic containers to use, tea, coffee, great shower, amazing washing machine. Amazing value for money. View of the sea from your room and from the lounge and deck. You will love your little home.

We loved staying in Paere House, it's location is perfect and the house is comfortable and perfect for long or short stays. Comfy bed, great kitchen and bathroom, fans and screens on all the windows and doors, spacious and quiet. It's close to Charlie's and Muri is only a few minutes drive away. But even better is the ability to walk across the road and have a great swimming and snorkelling spot right there. We will be back for sure!

This is a comfortable and well set up house where we enjoyed daily snorkeling at the beach across the road, a great variety of colourful fish every time. Home for a coffee ( plunger supplied), walk to lunch at various cafes within 15 mins walk. Nice walking up the side roads to the quiet backroad. Everything you need to cook an evening meal. Fans to keep you cool, and comfortable beds. A good nights sleep only disturbed by noisy neighbours ( rental property next door so you may be luckier) ,barking dogs, and enthusiastic roosters.( that's the same everywhere in Rarotonga; don't go to Raratonga if you don't like dogs). Highly recommended.

The property on the inside was clean and comfortable and well equipped, however the outside of the property was a bit tired and run down, just needed a lick of paint and the railings to be fixed - which wasn’t well represented in the photos. The hotspot for the internet didn’t work during our stay so you are best to purchase a SIM at the airport if you need connection to the outside world. Eddie was very easy to deal with and very helpful. We found there wasn’t any furniture for relaxing outside, Eddie provided some sun loungers for us which were much appreciated, enabling us to relax on the huge lawn. We loved the location which was directly across the road from the beach. It was great to be able to take advantage of the snorkelling. Lots of dogs and chooks around which are quite noisy at night - all very friendly though, although we did have a couple of odd shoes go missing, which we could only assume were pinched by one of the dogs, so keep your shoes inside if staying. Overall an enjoyable stay.
